Why a #RichellPet pet gate is the perfect fit.

RL logo_GREEN BLKWith the holidays right around the corner, the kitchen is bound to be even busier than usual. In our house, the kitchen is always the hub of activity. And with so many people visiting, and cooking, it’s not always the safest place for a dog!

However, Baby always wants to be right in the middle of it all. I can’t tell you all the close calls that have happened in the kitchen. From almost stepping on her, to dangerous things dropping next to her (chocolate, knives, etc), it is not the place we want her to be. For a long time we have wanted an attractive way to keep her out of the kitchen, luckily the Premium Plus Freestanding Pet Gate with Door exists!

We were really excited when the gate arrived. We couldn’t wait to get it set up and put it to use. Baby had other ideas though, she must have known somehow that this gate was going to keep her out of the kitchen. She made sure it wasn’t easy to open that box!

Of course, once she got off the box, she had to snoop around a bit. It was VERY easy to get set up, all that needed to be done was to add the legs (just a screwdriver did the trick)!

This gate is recommended for dogs between about 6 and 33 pounds. What we love about the gate is that you can configure it in different ways. The side panels of the gate lock into place, so you can easily adjust it to fit into different parts of your home.

Another awesome feature of the gate is that it has a door, making it easy for the humans (and dog if you want) to go in and out of the gate. We love this because there are times when nothing is happening in the kitchen other than visiting with people, so Baby can still easily be a part of that.

Baby isn’t in love with it, as you can see she likes to give us sad eyes when she has to be on the other side of the gate. We on the other hand can’t imagine life without it! It’s been so wonderful to have the peace of mind that comes from being able to keep Baby out of places we don’t want her to be. There are so many uses for a gate like this too, and the kitchen is just one of them.

logoNeato Disclosure

Disney Holiday Pet ScarfThe holiday season is here, and it’s a busy time of year! Luckily, there is something that you can put on your wish list that will help you keep your house clean all year long! The Neato!

I have wanted a robot vacuum since the first day I heard of them. Of course now I have upgraded my wish list to include the Neato! Why? It’s a true vacuum, not just a sweeper! And there are many other reasons to love the Neato too. Be sure to enter the giveaway below for your chance to win one for yourself.

I’ll share a little secret with you, I think that I might shed more than our dog ever could. Of course if you have pets, you know there will be shedding! The fact that Neato Robot Vacuums have been consistently reviewed as “Best For Pets” by Industry experts, and publications like CNET, appeals to me not just for our dog, but for the humans too!

How do you handle pet shedding? Check out the Neato Shedding Solutions Guide for some great tips from our friends at Pet360 and PetMD, to help care for your pets and your home!

Because our Baby likes to sleep on the carpet and run on the hard floors, I love that the Neato can easily move along different flooring and not lose suction! I also have a feeling Baby would get a kick out of seeing the Neato start vacuuming without me lifting a finger. That’s right, it runs all on it’s own on a schedule you set! It will even return back to charge itself when the battery gets low.

Also, now that winter is here, snow is too! That means MUD! Oh to have a robot vacuum to help keep on top of things! Are you falling in love with the Neato too? You have the chance to win a Neato Botvac 85 of your very own, just use the form below to enter. We would love to hear why YOU want to add a Neato to your wish list, tell us in the comments below!


Join me and other Neato bloggers on Twitter for a special #BlogPawsChat on 12/2 from 8:00PM to 10:00PM EST. Neato will be on hand to answer questions too! Giveaway ends 12/2/2014.

First snow of 2014, a time lapse

I saw that we had snow in the forecast yesterday, so I set up our time lapse camera just for fun to capture it. If you look closely you will see a few birds too, small and large. The little birds are called juncos, and they love to come eat our walnuts. We also get a few woodpeckers, and pigeons. You will see both juncos and pigeons in the video.

Note, this video has no sound. What it is the weather like in your part of the world?
